Forum: GratefulDead Subject: good introductions

After a bitch of a morning, I came in out of the rain and checked out Cliff's list. Said I would.

A favourite show of mine particularly because of the fine introduction of the band by Bill Graham.
Anybody's favourite introduction to a show?

I got a few:

There's that 67 show where Billl introduces them as "the oldest teenagers in the state of California."

I also really like the John Scher (sp?) intro to 1977 Englishtown DP where he sounds exactly like Kermit The Frog. "A very nice lady, Miss Donnajeanne Godchaux!"

Bill Graham's intro on One From The Vault, where they start plaing as they are named, is also pretty sweet.

Finally the John Scher intro on 9/21/1982, because I believe it was the only time saw them introduced (or maybe it is the only time I can remember - either way).

Fun question!

The Great American (8-13-75) intro by Bill stands out in my mind, with how the boys seem to each come in as they are introduced.
And can’t neglect the fun second set “Jones Gang” intro http://www.archive.org/details/gd1977-11-04.mtx.chappell.SB5.29091.flac16

A favourite show of mine for the 'China/Rider'. Probably in my top three.

There's a famous introduction where they're called the 'Jones Gang' ?

My favorite is from 4/12/70, which also an excellent show...

Bill Graham: "If the Dead End Kids were alive today they would be called the Grateful Dead."

My absolute all time favourite introduction - the Dead's first set at the Fillmore East 05-15-70 (apparently not in the Archive so I can't link it):

Bill Graham: During the calisthenics we'd like to introduce the gentlemen onstage. This is Pigpen on organ. From Atherton, California, this is Mr Robert Weir.
Weir: Thank you friends.
Graham: From Marin Junior College, Mr Philip Lesh.
Weir: That's a lie.
Garcia: That ain't Philip Lesh.
Graham: From 710 Ashbury Street, Mr Jerry Garcia.
Garcia: They'll never take me alive.
Graham: On drums, the son of Lenny Hart, Mickey Hart.
general hilarity from the band.
Weir: Let me have my cigarettes back.
Hart: That's one I owe ya.
Garcia: Can we play now? Outtasight.

"Doughknees, doughknees..."

That is a "classic"

Another great is from 12/5/71...

Keith: "New member of the family"

Bill: 'A vote for male chauvinism"

Pigpen: "The youngest oldtimer Ive ever met"

Phil: "The arianized strong backbone of the organization"

Bob: "A very, very youthful, ebullient but very, very dirty softball player"

Jerry: "If rock and roll was ever going to have a godfather"
